Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

A fresh perspective on planning, designing, implementing, and migrating to a Windows Server 2003 environment. Rand Morimoto and his co-authors began writing this book using their experience from several very large client implementations, some having more than 100 servers in production. On a daily basis, as this book was in production, they had clients with thousands of users taking advantage of the Windows Server 2003 security, scalability, performance, and reliability functions months before the product release. Because of that unique experience, the authors of this book were able to compile the best practices, installation and migration tips and tricks, performance optimization techniques, configuration tuning, and server management techniques for the readers of this book. Rather than revising from previously published chapters in the Windows Server 2000 Unleashed book, this book was written completely from scratch with the belief that this approach would incorporate the true recommendations from the author team for best practices, tips and tricks to get the most out of Windows Server 2003 networking environment.

After buying and returning 2 other books, I'm glad I finally found a book on Windows 2003 I plan to keep!
I've been working with Windows since 3.51, and as an MCSE, all I was looking for was a book *on* Windows 2003, not a cut-paste job of some Windows 2000 book. I've been beta testing Windows 2003 for several months, but wanted to double check for expert advice before biting the bullet on the migration this summer.
Based on the book abstract from the authors that said this book was written from *ground up*, I was hopeful this was it!
C1 on the technology primer was a great overview of what to expect in Windows 2003. C5 and C6 on design were good reading, I wish I knew some of *tips* before migrating to Windows 2000 a couple years ago. C17 on Windows 2000 to Windows 2003 migrations gave me several suggestions on how to migrate. And C31 on clustering was the best coverage on load balancing and clustering that I've ever seen printed in a book.
This is a book that an experienced NT or Windows 2000 administrator or architect would find helpful!

Format: Paperback
I bought this book a couple months ago based on the reviews here on Amazon. The primary purpose of buying the book was to help guide us through the design and migration from NT4 to Windows 2003.
While we have a long way to go (we're about 1/3 the way through our migration), we used the Windows Server 2003 Unleashed book as our bible. We're looking to expand our migration to include IPSec security and Group Policies once we're done with the core migration.
The only thing I was disappointed with the book was it's lack of information on IPv6. That's my next project here, but as I've been reading on the public boards, Microsoft may be changing the way they support IPv6, so maybe it's better we just hold off.
But I bought the book for migration hints from NT to 2003, and this book guided us along the way. Two thumbs up!

Format: Paperback
I was looking for a reference that covered the new Volume Shadow Copy, DFS, ASR, security components, IIS, RIS for Servers, and migration from Windows NT4 and Windows 2000. After downloading about a dozen whitepapers and buying a couple other Windows .NET Server books (all of which were outdated based on beta code or something), I finally bought this book based on a recommendation from a friend who works at Microsoft.
This book has a chapter on everything! Not only did the introduction tell me about new features I was not aware of in Windows Server 2003 that I'm going to try, but the book had detailed planning and preparation information as well as step by step procedures on implementing the technologies (steps that actually WORKED with the full release (not beta) version of the operating sytsem).
This is a great book for someone who wants to understand the basics of Windows Server 2003, or for someone experienced with Windows and wants to just cut right to the details.
Excellent book!

Format: Paperback
This book addressed my questions and then some! I've been tackling Group Policy problems for months and within minutes of jumnping to the chapter on Group Policies, I better understood where my problem was (and the new Group Policy Management Console is REALLY a Windows 2003 add-in that shouldn't be skipped!)
We're collapsing a couple of our domains into a centralized forest, and some of the tips in the book clarified a misunderstanding that my colleagues have been arguing for weeks.
I haven't even scratched the surface of this book, but I have a feeling it'll be well used for many many months to come.

Format: Paperback
I've bought several of Rand Morimoto's books in the past, and this book was just as exceptional as the others! The company I work for is a 350-person law firm with limited IT staff. I wanted to leverage the new security, server consolidation, data replication, and fault tolerance technologies built-in to Windows Server 2003 and turned to this book for guidance.
I'm happy to say that by flipping through a handful of chapters in this book, I was able to successfully migrate my company to Windows Server 2003 this week!
Very well written, and each chapter stands on its own, so I didn't have to read all 1200 pages cover to cover to find the information I was looking for! I look forward to flipping through other chapters to start implementing other Windows Server 2003 technologies!
I highly recommend this book!

The coverage in this book on disaster recovery and business continuity is outstanding! I was in the middle of writing our DR/BP plan when I noticed this book had a whole chapter dedicated to DR planning. I took a chance and bought the book hoping there would be helpful information as I help my team justify our company's migration to Windows 2003.
Very detailed steps, and great recommendations on benefits other organizations have received in their migration process. The steps on migration from Windows NT4 to Windows 2003 as well as the security sections are well defined.
Very helpful book!

Format: Paperback
I've bought 4 other books on Windows 2003 to help me with our migration to Active Directory and have been disappointed with the real world experience in all of the other books. This was the first book that had tips and tricks based on real world guidance. I was amazed that the book covered Service Pack 1 being that SP1 just came out a couple months ago. Was VERY helpful as we struggled with our migration process over the past couple months, and after I bought this book last month, we were able to get a clear handle on our implementation of Windows 2003! Outstanding book, I highly recommend it!!!
